Hopefully this will prompt Traveline in the rest of the UK to make the change.

Excellent news   Grin Grin

I have just e-mailed Traveline Northwest and Yorkshire (my two most local centres) asking them when they will be changing their's! 

I would assume as Traveline's existing 0871 number "diverts" to the regional call centre's and Wales used this number previously that all Traveline locations could use the same 03 number!!  Cool

and it appears they can afford to as they are funded by the Welsh Government which as far as I am aware the other Traveline services are not funded centrally, but locally.

Perhaps this is why they continue to use an 0871 number.

Sad
